Compared to other metalworking processes, open die forging achieves a contoured grain flow, fine grain size, and consolidated porosity resulting in an inherently stronger part. Steel Industries newly acquired 3,500 ton open die forging press allows our forging experts to produce heavier custom open die forgings (3,000-10,000 lb range) including ring and disk products for various industries as well as forged components for aerospace applications.
• 3500 Ton Open-Die Forging Press, Designed by Lake Erie Engineering Corp.
• Relocated from FVC (DeSoto Rd) to Steel Industries Inc in Redford Twp, MI.
• Enhanced capability for Custom Open-Die Forgings up to 25,000 lbs.
